G'nite you guys. I love you all but I'm so tired I'm weeping for no reason. Need to recharge. This, my life, is hard.

I must have missed that, Luise.  It looked like ex to me.  Goodnight and have a better tomorrow. Thinking of you... :)

Dear Luise,

I hope today is better for you.  And yes, if we were so concerned the past few days, I know you were too.  I'm sorry we didn't help there and I hope it is easier now and feelings are mended.  This is still a wonderful sit and always will be!  I stand by that, and you - do you know that?

You are very important here, and I would always want you considered!  You are my favorite role model.  At one time (don't know if you remember this), I stated, "now I know what I want to be when I grow up.  I want to be you!"  I meant those words then and I still do.  You are caring and loving in  every sense of the words, and I would trust you with my life.

Feel that?  - Me hugging you again! :)  I don't believe I've done that lately and I'm sorry.  Wait!  Here's another!


When I started having a problem with my dil I went searching for answers.

I found lots of sites that were mainly for dil's. Even the sites that were for grandparents.

I needed to find a place that would listen to my side and understand me and what I was going through. I needed a place that could be understanding.
A place that would be on my side...no matter what. A place I could come to to vent without being told I'm wrong or evil because my dil was right all the time. A place that wouldn't jump on me when I told my story of my contolling manipulative dil.

I needed a place that would calm my nerves...I found that place right here.

We are the best.


C/C - Thank you.

My issues are pretty much on the home front. Val is failing rapidly and it's hard to keep up. Each day I take on more and then the next day my plan is obsolete and I have to regroup.

My poor, old footie is really sore long before the day comes to an end and I find all of it pretty overwhelming because I have to go on no matter what.

The good news is Kirk is here! I was so glad to see him when he arrived that I walked into his arms for a hug and them couldn't let go. And then, I started to cry (which is not me.) So much has happened in the five months since he left. I'm a wreck.

I've been worried.  I know you are taking care of Val with your foot too!  The thought hit me that it was an awful lot to take in for anyone!

I'm happy Kirk is there with you and I hope you are smiling and feeling lighter!  I can understand not wanting to let him go!  I can also understand that he probably didn't want to let you go either, and I just wan to say one thing...

Happy Birthday, Luise! ;D

We love you here so much and want you to have the best!  After all, you've given that to us!

The best, that is...  I mean it!


Luise!  I am so very sorry!  :'(  I am sorry that Val is in this condition and thankful that Kirk is there.  He's your angel right now.  Let us know how you are in these days ahead.  We are thinking about you and love you.


My ankle is throbbing and I'm fighting tears. Typical evening. It all went to heck and gone here about two weeks ago when Val left the house in the middle of then night in his pajamas. I caught up with him but I have had to put in an alarm system to protect him since he's starting into dementia.. And now he can't walk the dog any longer because he might have another dementia episode and not be able to find his way home (we are next to a huge summer camp with lots of woods) or he could wander off campus and onto the arterial. I am having to walk the dog,,,and Val...because Val needs his exercise and will become too weak to walk if we don't keep it up. That has set my foot off...big time. It's an avalanche of events.

On my birthday, March 9th, I hope to put up a positive post about the things that happened that were great over the last year...WWU being one of them! Maybe in the Inspiration/ Bio category.

I love you all...I'm just up against it.

Kirk is coming tomorrow to do a dog/Val walk for me. I'm so gratefu.

Please keep me in your prayers.l

Absolutely!  Done...

Sending you healing and loving thoughts too!


Bless your heart, Luise.  You are in our prayers...we made a pact, all of us. :'(


Yes we did, and guest1 too! 

Everything works out in ways we can't imagine.  And, without challenge, adventure is impossible!  That's Your signature line, but it is also true.  We are all here to be examples of it! :)

You just enjoy your son and relish the moment, Luise. 

We aren't going anywhere.  We are using our "heart magnets" now! ;D


Oh, that's lovely. Bless your hearts...Thank you.

Well, we don't have your magic! ;D

Except in our hearts...


Did I forget to tell you that anyone who has over 1000 posts get an honorary magic wand? And that's where you find them, in your hearts! Chickie? Find yours?

Well, then Chickie - you have one and a half! 

I guess I almost have one!  LOL!

Luise, yours is just magical.  Really it is!  I hope you have seen that!

You've created the magical site! :)
